"ac 360" starts now. >>> we begin with breaking news. new signs tonight the syrian government could be preparing to do the unthinkable, unleash chemical weapons on its own people. the united states has new intelligence suggesting syrian forces now mixing the ingredients used to make deadly serin gas. a serious civil war has progressed. the obama administration has repeatedly warned even just moving chemical weapons would be a red line that could draw a swift response. just hours ago, president obama directly addressing the assad regime about this latest intelligence. >> today, i want to make it absolutely clear to assad and those under his command, the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable, and if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable. >> the world of course has been watching in horror at the atrocitie
in the war itself. it's a difficult challenge. >> we understand the obama administration is now considering arming the syrian rebels, something you've advocated for a long time. obviously in reaction to concerns the administration won't have any sway with the rebels should the assad regime fall. arwa damon has been inside syria for more than about a week now. she's been talking to rebels who say they're angry at the international community for its inaction and won't tolerate meddling now. do you think there's anything at this point the u.s., its allies can do to try to repair that relationship? >> i think we could establish a safe zone from which they could organize and operate. the other problem, as you know, is the dramatic infiltration over the last year or so of these jihadists, al qaeda jihadist extremists from all over the arab world. you name a country and they've come in from there. and unfortunately, some of the countries that are providing the weapons, those have gone directly to these extremists. rather than to the moderate forces. and without a place to organize, to set up a gov
